Hi, I just started meds last thursday. I'm taking 10mg of prednisone a day and 400mg of plaquinol a day. However, I feel like I'm getting worse. My hands are so swollen and bruised. I've been having chest pains, no energy, my periods have been clotty, and my head has hurt non-stop. I'm functioning on vicodin. Why am I feeling worse? How long should it take for me to feel better? I'm getting very scared and frustrated. I just called my rhummy and left a message. I need some words of advice please.
